What the Critics Say

"After Washington, D.C. is vaporized by a nuclear surface blast, Marc Beck, wonder boy of the American foreign service, prevails on Ashmead, covert action chief, to help him fly two batches of anticancer serum from Israel to the Houston White House. From the moment they establish their gritty relationship, life is filled with treachery and terror for Beck, who must deal with one cliffhanger after another during the desperate days that follow. This novel shocks us with a sudden, satisfying ending." (Publishers Weekly)
